I encourage all readers to vote for Gene Pease for Chapel Hill Town Council.

As a former Town Council member, I have observed that Gene has precisely the qualities necessary to work with other council members to assure the right fiscal balance as the town continues to mature.

Taxes are on folks’ minds, and Gene’s experience several years ago as head of the Citizen’s Budget Advisory Committee appointed by the council demonstrated Gene’s understanding of budgetary matters based on his experience as the CEO of his company.

Why is this important to the University community? As the University continues to grow and redevelop, a council member with a strong business background and ability to listen will be ever more important. As Gene has demonstrated, his experience in dealing with University matters (representing the Gimghoul neighborhood regarding negotiations for the Cobb parking deck) has made him forthright and very willing to listen to all sides of an issue.

Please vote Nov. 3, and cast one of your votes for Gene.
